UPSET ALERT
By Stephen Black
Top-ranked Golden Hawks, debutant Houston County face tough competition

 

A few of this week's potential upsets, featuring ranked teams who are on "upset alert" tonight:

 

Class AAA No. 1 Washington County at Class AAAA No. 8 Burke County

We don't typically pick games featuring teams from lower classifications

potentially being upset by teams from higher classifications, but frankly, the Golden Hawks are as good as any team not in AAAAAA and not named "Buford". This will be a stiff test for Washington County, however, as Burke County can hang with WaCo athletically and won the last two meetings between the two (2010 and 2011).

 

It will be a quarterback dual of sorts as WaCo's A.J. Gray (committed to Georgia Tech) leads the Golden Hawks' offense and Caleeb Roberson guides Burke County. The host Bears are coming off losses to Griffin and South Carolina-power Northside-Augusta. WaCo, meanwhile, has beaten three quality opponents (Thomson, Mary Persons and Veterans), all by at least 27 points.

 

 

B.E.S.T. Academy at Class AA No. 4 Lovett

The defending state champs host one of the great mysteries of Georgia high school football this week in B.E.S.T. Academy. In just their fourth year as a program, the Eagles are 2-1 with an impressive win over Callaway and a loss to powerful Central-Carroll, which is ranked No. 7 in AAA. B.E.S.T. made the playoffs last year and took Carver-Columbus to four overtimes before losing 38-32.

 

Lovett, meanwhile, has lost twice this season, but to ranked opponents from higher classifications. The Lions' offense is not quite as potent as last year's version, but their defense has been stingy yet again. Last week's 21-20 win over Woodward Academy evened Lovett's record.

 

 

Class A-Public No. 10 Atkinson Co. at Class A-Public No. 2 Charlton Co.

Atkinson County has come out guns-a-blazin' this season, with a 3-0 record with three convincing wins. The Rebels were 1-9 last year in coach Kipp Hall's first season at the helm, but have made an incredible turnaround this season. Hall, who coached at Druid Hills from 2006-2012, has taken well to the south Georgia program it seems.

 

Now it gets real. Atkinson will travel to perennial Class A-power Charlton County, a program that has made the playoffs 24 straight seasons, according to GHSFHA.org. A win here by Atkinson would give the Rebels a shocking first place standing in Region 2-A, arguably the toughest in the classification.

 

 

Roswell at Class AAAAAA No. 8 Milton

The old adage regarding rivalries is "you can throw the records out when these two get together." While that phrase has become jaded due to the media's overuse of it, this year's Roswell-Milton game qualifies. The Hornets, though unranked, looked impressive in dismissing Centennial 42-10 in Week 2 and upsetting previously undefeated Walton last week.

 

Milton has burst onto the AAAAAA scene this year behind the dynamic running of Micco Brisker and a defense that has allowed 10 total points in wins over Alpharetta and Norcross.

 

Roswell leads the 55-year-old series 34-24-1 despite losing three straight. Sometimes called The Battle of North Fulton, this game carries with it a lot of history. It is one of the most tradition-rich rivalries in metro Atlanta football.

 

 

Class AAAAAA No. 10 Houston County at Warner Robins

The Bears debuted in this week's poll, but they could be out as quickly as they got into it. Houston County travels to county-neighbor Warner Robins tonight in what has turned into a nice middle-Georgia rivalry in recent years. HCHS opened in 1991, but didn't play the mighty Demons until 1998. While the Bears lost 10 of the first 12 meetings (2004 was a tie), they have won two of the past four, including last year's 27-23 upset.

 

Warner Robins will be looking for revenge this season and this matchup may be the most ripe for an 'upset" this week.

 

 




WEEKEND PREVIEW
By Craig Sager II
Heart of the season sets up key matchups

 

It's Week 5 and football enters the heart of the season. Class AAAAAA heavyweights McEachern and Lovejoy square off for each other's final non-region contest, while the majority of the state is in region play fighting for playoff rights. Roswell at Milton and Collins Hill at North Gwinnett are games to watch in Class AAAAAA along with Parkview at Grayson. Grayson topped Archer last week and a win over Parkview would put the Rams in prime position to capture the Region 8 crown.

over previously unbeaten Walton. Collins Hill and North Gwinnett both look like possible playoff teams, but Region 7 is deep with Peachtree Ridge, Norcross and Mill Creek and this is a big game and anything could happen.

 

Houston County and Warner-Robins and Northside-Warner Robins at Jones County highlight some of middle Georgia's finest programs. Houston County entered the Class AAAAA rankings this week for the first time and Northside-Warner Robins looks to protect its No. 1 ranking against a 3-0 Jones County team.

 

Glynn Academy and Coffee is a critical Region 3-AAAAA game. Coffee comes off a loss to Ware County and the Terrors could gain footing in Region 3-AAAAA with a win over Coffee.

 

Stephenson and Creekside play for what could determine the Region 5-AAAAA championship. Stephenson lost rival Tucker to Class AAAAAA this year, but Creekside thrashed the Tigers 52-28 in the Class AAAAA championship last season and will be the Jaguars' new challenge.

 

The biggest storyline outside of region play comes out of Region 1-AAAAAA's six teams. Camden County, Colquitt County, Lowndes, Valdosta, Lee County and Tift County are 22-0 against non-region opponents this season. With favorable matchups for each left on the slate, it looks like we could see a flawless 29-0 mark once region play starts up in October.
